I was privileged to be a part of the NWP’s CSUN summer 2010 program.
Besides the obvious perks to the program (an awesome archive of tried and true lessons developed by teachers I can aspire to become only a shadow of one day,) I found the precious six weeks to be a time of rejuvenation, where I was able to truly collaborate with my teacher-peers. It really was a honor to be in the presence of such remarkable educators, not only sitting alongside me, but instructing me (thank you so so so much, Kathy and Ximena and Marlene).
Education is once again in the limelight, thanks to value added (Times), Superman (movie), RIFs (LAUSD and every other district), and Obama (no need for more info). How can a program that seeks to better education through authentic practices be challenged? How can we eliminate precisely what education so desperately needs right now? Continue the funding of NWP.
Thank you, NWP.
